INTERNET-FILTERING:
YouTube launch of AFA election brochure




News Weekly, October 13, 2007
The Australian Family Association has launched an election brochure, Making the Internet Safe.

A new Australian Family Association election brochure, Making the Internet Safe, calls on the Coalition and the Labor Party to utilise available advanced technology to create and effective filtering system (available at www.family.org.au).

The AFA has highlighted the ineffectiveness of the Government's home filters with a remake of the Government's television advertisement, and put it on YouTube at: http://youtube.com/watch?v=BRIi711Pox0

The AFA argues for a far more comprehensive filtering system based on expanding the blacklist compiled by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) of sites to be filtered.

Advanced filtering technologies are already being used by large institutions to build internal blacklists for their networks. The NSW Department of Education is filtering over one million computers and automatically building an extensive internal blacklist.

The AFA wants the Government to look seriously at obtaining these lists commercially to expand the ACMA blacklist, then to be supplied to internet service-providers (ISPs) for filtering illegal and objectionable content.
